I've told Firefox to always open PDFs in Firefox. Google Docs/Sheets always generates a PDF when told to print. These PDFs are not opening in Firefox. If I set Firefox to 'always ask', I receive the prompt for what to do with the PDF from Google, and here I can open it in Preview (I am on Mac) or tell it to open in Firefox and it will open a new tab and display the PDF. But if Firefox is told to always open the PDF itself, then no new tab opens with the PDF, and the PDF doesn't load in the existing tab either. Is there a way to have Firefox always open up PDFs -and- have the Google generated PDF open properly?

If it helps, I am on MacOS Big Sur 11.2, but have seen this with previous versions of the OS. Firefox is up to date (85.0.2), but I've also seen this happen with earlier versions of Firefox. I have tried this with all extensions off as well as the usual extensions on. Google is generating the PDF using pdf.js, but nothing seems to be blocking the javascript or generating any errors, I checked in the developer tools (console and networking and debugger).

Using an Espressif Systems ESP8622 Espressif Systems ESP8622 I am trying to delve into the IOT. A simple page I uploaded to the 8622 last night would not display in FF. (78.7.1esr running on 2009 MAcPro OS 10.11.6). The page - displaying data from a DHT22 Temp & Humidity sensor appeared very briefly in the FF browser only to be replaced by a “Connection was reset” dialog. The ESP8622 is over WiFi through my router where could see it. I could also Ping it. I tried the local IP on another Mac using Chrome and the page loaded and stayed up and ditto result on a Pi4 in Chrome. Possible cause - a setting in config? Somewhere I keep away from unless guided! Just in case it helps - Hoping someone can throw some light...

Just in case there's an element in the code FF does not like- webpage code is below:

def web_page():

 html = """<html><head><meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
 <style>body{padding: 20px; margin: auto; width: 50%; text-align: center;}
 .progress{background-color: #F5F5F5;} .progress.vertical{position: relative;
 width: 25%; height: 60%; display: inline-block; margin: 20px;}
 .progress.vertical > .progress-bar{width: 100% !important;position: absolute;bottom: 0;}
 .progress-bar{background: linear-gradient(to top, #f5af19 0%, #f12711 100%);}
 .progress-bar-hum{background: linear-gradient(to top, #9CECFB 0%, #65C7F7 50%, #0052D4 100%);}
 p{position: absolute; font-size: 1.5rem; top: 50%; left: 50%; transform: translate(-50%, -50%); z-index: 5;}</style></head>
 <body><h1>DHT Sensor</h1><div class="progress vertical">

So when i go to click on zoom links in firefox, it opens the webclient of zoom (website that says join meeting and or download here if prompt is not shown) and opens the zoom app. BUT that is it, it does not actually join the meeting on the zoom app i have to manually prompt the download now link, or copy and paste the link into the zoom join option. Why cant I just click the zoom link and have it automatically join the meeting without needing to prompt the download option or manually having to enter the zoom meeting id?

Thumbnails, icons and channel art are blurry and pixelated whenever I browse YouTube as a Brand Account. There's no issue when I use my Owner Account or whenever I sign out, but switching back to my Brand Account downgrades the image quality.

I've tried clearing cookies and site data, using safe mode, and disabling add-ons.

As of now the workaround is to open Google Translate or Google Transliteration in a new tab and manually copy the output to the original tab.

I am on FF 78.7.1esr on windows 10 and since a few weeks the fonts on some websites look bad as shown in the uploaded images. Even the text box where I am typing in this question right now does not show a clear font. I have not installed any new FF extension recently but there have been windows updates.

I did find some rather old information about blurry fonts related to shockwave flash content and I disabled the option to "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" but this did not really solve the issue. (I still need flash for learning content so I did not uninstall it but created a mms.cfg file as recommended by adobe).

Have there been recent changes to FF font rendering? I did not see the problem before January 2021.

Hi, I use office 365 (as an example) on two computers. On one all is fine .. if I double click on an email in my outlook inbox the popup windows opens in foreground. On another computer I have (both have all firefox updates installed) popups open behind the browser - so I actually don't see that anything has happened.

I tried restartig FF without addons. I tried using another user container. I searched the net but only found tipps that were quite old.

Anyone have an idea what I can do to prevent windows from opening behind the browser?

85.0.2 (but happened before that version too).
